What are Manufacturing Execution Systems?
Automate and Integrate Your Process
Tracking and managing all of the activity within your manufacturing operation is critical but, in turn, significantly challenging and time consuming without the right processes in place. Put simply, manufacturing execution systems (MES) are software solutions that help your people and processes work better together.
Everything in MES revolves around collecting data, analyzing it, and then creating actionable information for different consumers, whether it’s a c-level, quality manager, IT, maintenance, or anyone in between—they all care about different pieces of the puzzle. Information from your control or automation systems helps them make intelligent business decisions.
These control systems not only connect across multiple plants, sites, and live production information, but also must be able to integrate easily with equipment, controllers, and enterprise business applications. The result is improved capacity, quality, delivery, visibility, and overall manufacturing production optimization.
